DPR recently celebrated the topping out of Mayo Clinic’s new patient tower in Phoenix, AZ.

The six-story building is designed to boost capacity and meet patient demand in the Southwest. The 583,000 sq.-ft. tower will add 99 inpatient beds as well as clinical and support spaces. It is connected to the existing hospital tower by a cantilevered bridge at each floor along with an underground tunnel connecting the existing concourse to the new expansion.

“Reaching this milestone for Mayo Clinic’s West Expansion was the result of close collaboration and careful planning in our Big Room environment. We’ve been laser-focused on maintaining the patient experience while keeping construction-related disruptions to a minimum,” said DPR senior project manager Kyle Allan.

The facility is part of a multi-year expansion to nearly double the size of the Mayo Clinic’s campus. The tower’s configuration leaves the door open for future growth as well. Designed by HKS, the tower is designed for future vertical expansion and can accommodate nine floors.

Other project partners include LPR Erectors, Able Steel Fabricators, and structural engineer PK Associates.
